No that's the off topic.
Here is my .22 QB78 next to my Custom Shop 2300 with the RB grips that gubb33ps sent me. I've ordered a QB 78 in .177 to go in the new stock because the QB has quite a few cosmetic issues, especially some damage on the trigger guard. It's almost as cheap to buy the whole gun and have extras than to buy a few of certain parts!


One QB78 reviewer on PA wished the fore-stock was wider and flatter. I have that with this stock with a little weight penalty. The QB stock from this example weighs 2 lb. 6.5 ounces and the Richards weighs 2 lb. 11 ounces.

when I point the gun the front sight is centered in the rear with my natural grip whereas the stock Crosman grips throw the front sight a blade width to the right. It was way too windy here today to try .177 on CO2 so I'll see how it shoots with the new grips next week sometime.

..that sitting in the parts box. Look good as a pair.

Now that I think about it, may have a QB trigger housing around here someplace.

..surprises are always nice.

Although not Chinese, turns out the "orphan" pellets did their best in a non-China made rifle.

Hollis:
Love orphan .25 pellets. Or atleast I love trying to match the orpahns to a .25 (if any) that will shoot them well.

Found the rifle that will shoot the 24.4gr. H&N F.T. and the 19.9gr. F.T.T. pellets well enough to use to help rid the bacyard of power0trasformer-shorting,m attic invading, gray(tree) squirrels.


It''s a springer...ok...it's a gas-ram springer...and only (with these pellets ) in the 13.3-13.5 foot pound region).



And the 20 yard practice target (tried to make it a little bit lower contrast by sketch-coloring in the squirrel body):




YEah...can tell I'm a confirmed airgunner...couldn't find two dimes (airgunners are always poor)...had to use two pennies.

Will leave the rifle/scope./adjustments alone and just dedicate the remainter of those tins to that paticular rifle, the squirrels dumb enough to expose themselves, and a sharp knife to skin. quarter them.

Thanks for the orphan pellets...lets see if I can put the knife to work.

that is much better than those pellets did in a .25 Marauder or down a .25 pipe I had on a Talon for a while.
Best regards
